In Year 5 this term, we are reading ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ by Roald Dahl.  The children will be studying the text in detail and finding out about the authors style and how he uses effective vocabulary to bring the characters and settings to life. 

During the afternoons, the children will be learning all about the Ancient Maya Civilisation, including how, where and when they lived and how their discoveries and inventions still affect our lives today. As part of this topic we will be visiting Cadbury’s World to find out how chocolate was discovered about how is made today.



In Year five we learn all about keeping ourselves safe and this includes learning how to swim.  The children will be attending Fenton Manor Sports Complex once a week, on a Wednesday afternoon, where they will be taught how to swim.  This is such an important skill, one which could literally save a life!

Year 5 have been completing some research, making sure they cross-reference the internet source to avoid fake news!
